Got My Number

We’re heading into wildflower season here in San Diego. (I hardly dare admit this you you northeastern folks.) Admiring the orange and yellow roadsides from the backseat of the minivan, Rose says, “Mom, I want to know more about plants and birds.”

Me: “OK, we can start doing more nature walks again and work on our nature journals.”

Rilla pipes up: “Mommy, I want to know more about princesses and princes getting married.”

Me, suppressing a laugh: “OK, let’s read more fairy tales at home!”

Beanie, slyly: “Mom, I want to know more about….candy!”
